DHL / Bashkirian Midair One Year Ago

Thu Jul 03, 2003 7:08 am

Pause a moment to remember the 71 lives - incl. 45 children - lost on board the DHL 757 and Bashkirian Tu 154M in the night from July 1st to 2nd, 2002.
While every accident is tragic, this is somehow even more so to me. Maybe because it was a midair, maybe because of the high number of children onboard.

As Krusty would say

That's so sad all those kids. That was sad I remember when one happened here and we lost one radio host from WGN and that hospital was hit too.
